Abstract

The verses of the holy Qur’an were revealed in a sequence and this sequence end with the completion of the whole process of revelation when the Holy Scripture was presented to the holy prophet as a sole and single whole book of guidance. Right from the outset it has been under close scrutiny of both the Muslims and non-believers. While the non-believers have always been skeptical about the truthfulness of the divine message. The Muslim on the other hand served a great cause of passing on to the people what Allah (SWT) termed as a source of guidance and treasure of knowledge. The word revelation itself stands for a message from God Which He conveyed to the prophet in different ways. Sometimes the message comes through the angel Gabriel and at other times through hints and clue. However, with the development of science, a group of western thinkers denied the genuineness of revelation, but surprisingly most of these skeptics were either theists or Pagans who had least to do with religion and the sole purpose was to mislead or misguide the public about the divine message. They also raised doubts about the authorship of the Holy Qur’an and some even designated the holy prophet (SAW) as the writer. In this article, the doubts of the skeptics or non-believers, which depicted a prejudicial picture of the Qur’an, have been critically analyzed.
